Abstract

Abstract Seamless application execution is vital for the usability of various delay-sensitive mobile cloud applications. However, the resource-intensive migration process and intrinsic limitations of the wireless medium impede the realization of seamless execution in mobile cloud computing (MCC) environment. This work is the first comprehensive survey that studies the state-of-the-art cloud-based mobile application execution frameworks (CMAEFs) in perspective of seamless application execution in MCC and investigates the frameworks suitability for the seamless execution. The seamless execution enabling approaches for the CMAEFs are identified and classified based on the implementation locatio..
